SILEH IN THE HOLY QUR’AN

SILEH IN THE HOLY QUR’AN

Imam Sadiq (Peace be upon Him) said:
Whoever believes that the Imam is in need of people’s possessions is not a believer. It is the people who are in need of the Imam to accept from them. Allah, the almighty says: Take charity from their possessions to cleanse them and purify them
(Surah Tawbah- Verse: 104:

الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ بِإِسْنَادِهِ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَليه السلام:

مَنْ زَعَمَ أَنَّ الْإِمَامَ يَحْتَاجُ إِلَى مَّا فِي أَيْدِي النَّاسِ فَهُوَ كَافِرٌ. إنَّمَا النَّاسُ يَحْتَاجُونَ أَنْ يَقْبَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْإِمَامُ. قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ- خُذْ مِنْ أَمْوالِهِمْ صَدَقَةً تُطَهِّرُهُمْ وَ تُزَكِّيهِمْ بِها (توبة، آية ١٠٤)

We heard Abu Abdillah (Peace be upon Him) says that:

There is nothing more loved by Allah than the dirhams taken out (of one’s property) to (pay to) the Imam, and Allah will multiply his dirhams in paradise like the mountain of Uhud’. Then he (Peace be upon Him) said that Allah, the sublime, says in His Book: ’Who is that will lend to Allah a good loan, and He will multiply it for him manifold?’ (Al-Baqarah,245). He (Peace be upon Him) then said: ”By Allah, this loan is about the Sileh given to the Imam”.

عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْوَشَّاءِ عَنْ عِيسَى بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ النَّحَّاسِ عَنِ الْمُفَضَّلِ بْنِ عُمَرَ عَنِ الْخَيْبَرِيِّ وَ يُونُسَ بْنِ ظَبْيَانَ قَالا سَمِعْنَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏:

مَا مِنْ شَيْ‏ءٍ أَحَبَّ إِلَى اللَّهِ مِنْ إِخْرَاجِ الدَّرَاهِمِ إِلَى الْإِمَامِ وَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَيَجْعَلُ لَهُ الدِّرْهَمَ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِثْلَ جَبَلِ أُحُدٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى يَقُولُ فِي كِتَابِهِ‏ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللَّهَ‏ قَرْضاً حَسَناً فَيُضاعِفَهُ لَهُ‏ أَضْعافاً كَثِيرَةً. قَالَ هُوَ وَ اللَّهِ فِي صِلَةِ الْإِمَامِ خَاصَّةً.

Ishaq ibn Ammar said:

I asked Abu Ibrahim (Musa ibn Jafar), (Peace be upon Him), concerning the words of Allah, to Whom belong Might and Majesty: Who is he that will lend to Allah a good loan, and He will multiply it for him, and his shall be a generous wage? (al-Hadid, 57:11). He (Peace be upon Him), said: It was revealed about the sileh to the Imam.

أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ أَبِي الْمَغْرَاءِ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ ع قَالَ:

سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللَّهَ قَرْضاً حَسَناً فَيُضاعِفَهُ لَهُ وَ لَهُ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ‏ (حدید، آیه 11) قَالَ نَزَلَتْ فِي صِلَةِ الْإِمَامِ.
